Tampa Bay NACE @ Top Golf

Us event industry people like to have fun too! Our July National Associate for Catering & Events was hosted by Sarah, and her team at Top Golf.  I hadn't been there before and it was SO much fun!  It was, of course, a golf inspired theme with golf ball center pieces and chocolate favors.  Delicious food, great friendors, some of us golfed:-)  The light there is really cool as it gets dark the lights on the driving range green come on and it looks pretty sweet!

April NACE @ Isla Del Sol

Tampa Bay wedding/event professionals work hard and play hard.  Our April NACE meeting was Hawaiian Luau themed complete with hula dancers and fire!  Cocktail hour was on the pool deck overlooking the bay.  The room was decorated with tall palm fronds, blue and aqua uplighting with palm tree linen overlays. This was a very competitive group and I have to say I was pretty impressed with the culinary fruit carving skills!  After a fabulous dinner of salmon and chicken the hula dancers needed a little help and participation from the audience:-) Such a fun evening with some of my favorite people!

National Association of Catering Executives November Meeting

NACE is a great professional wedding/event industry networking group I'm a member of.  The November meeting theme topic was a panel discussion on the how to's of getting more corporate business.  Joanie, the events direction from the Westin Harbour Island was the fabulous hostess.  Amazing cuisine (the grilled cheese um yum!), and of course my favorite downfall dessert:-)  Each table was a different color with gorgeous textured linens.  Cocktail hour was in the foyer area with spandex chair/table covers and copper colored crinkle linens.  That's not the official name of them, I made that one up:-)  It was a great event!
